Iain Duncan Smith by Shiki-Scarlet Iain Duncan Smith by Shiki-Scarlet
I have to admit, I really loath the tories here in the UK. Axing benefits for people in need, forcing the disabled into unpaid labor which has systematically skyrocketed suicide rates and now demanding the unemployed to use a new website that spies on them and sends all there applications to the government in order to force more people off benefits and crush welfare out completely. If anyone should be called parasites, its these people.

How much further is this madness going to go anyway. So if your unemployed you must follow these rules basically?

#Not allowed to have fun
#Not allowed to drink
#Not allowed to have money
#Not allowed to own a TV
#Not allowed to Play video games
#Food and water rations only
#Disabled people and the sick are all scroungers and must be sent to workhouses, this includes terminal cancer patients, those suffering from motor neurone disease, down syndrome and alzheimers.
#No human rights, thats for rich people silly poo~
#Must agree to be spied on and have corpgov read all your applications
#No entertainment in any form allowed, having fun is just proof your scrounging!
#Only allowed outside if your looking for jobs.
#Must attend a 9999999 week work course.
#Must agree to do unpaid labor for 40+ hours a week.
#Internet must only be used for job searching.
#Must agree to sign over your soul and first born child to the DWP.
#Your not allowed to have a life.

Seems legit.

Funny, here in the US of A, every poor or disadvantaged person is required to work at a WalMart and get yelled at by disgruntled customers from time to time... :(

This made me laugh so hard. I can imagine plenty of politicians in my country who would say that.

He probably thinks every unemployed person in England purposefully tried to lose their job and get benefits. (facepalm)

Indeed which is ironic since his government put many people onto them through there austerity agenda.

Perhaps not complaining to people over the internet would make progress. The Bolsheviks didn't have Facebook or Twitter to moan on.

Not everyone has the means/capability to go out and protest in the streets.

No but the internet has helped the spread of information, I'm simply expressing an opinion not calling for a revolution. While I am posting on the internet I have been out there myself at protests and volunteering with activists groups in the past, so don't waste time pulling the slacktivist card.

Considering I see you in the DA communism group(a group on DA that has 100s of people posting opinions and topical works and criticising much of the neoliberal system), I must beg the question but are you out there doing anything right now yourself? If so then you have my respect for doing something

There has been mass strikes from public sector workers, protests, petitions, people been arrested for personally calling the prime minister out on his bullshit in public. Even a number of big shots in the health service have told David Cameron to knock it off, and he's still pushing for privatization of the health service.

For for the unemployed, its hard for them to organize due to so much slander and smear campaigns from right wing media that poetrays them all as lazy, scrongers, the cause of all soceities ills etc. Through there are a number of small movements brewing too [link]

My favourite is the using of the French company Atos to declare who is medically cleared to work and who isn't, but they're so inept.

It's incredible some of the things people end up losing their disability for.

Indeed, I've heard some of the horror stories regarding Atos.

You should read it. It's both hilarious and insightful. It usually reports on a lot of stuff well before the mainstream media does, if it even does in the first place.

Plus Ian Hislop edits it. That's reason enough.

They usually have some interesting features as well. The one about NHS whistleblowers was incredibly informative, and gives you some insight into some of the atrocities of bureaucracy that can cause people to die.
